Any tips for falling back asleep when you're wide awake at 3AM?
first of all, every problem needs a solution. I don't think you are asking the right question. You're wide awake at 3 am because i bet you wake up at 1 or 2 PM?
We are like nature, must sleep when the night comes, so you must have the right amount of sleep at the right time!
Set your alarm to 8am o'clock when you're up at 3am. I bet you will be in bed by 11 pm the next day. Go to bed at the right time, wake up early. Trust me, you will feel much better in time when you get use to it.
Just make your mind go blank. Think of a black abyss. Just darkness.
Multiple things can work or not. People have said Yoga, or meditation, neither work for me. I think different things work for different people. If it's an ongoing problem, then I'd highly advise asking an accupuncturist. Because there are tons of points on our bodies that we can stimulate just with accupressure, that could work. Outside of that I usually will try the TV, reading or writing. It's a tough one because everyone's different.
Yeah, lay back down and continue to lay there while hoping you'll get at least 5 more minutes of sleep before your alarm clock goes off. Or, get up, move around and pretend you don't have to get up for work or whatever and jump back into bed later, just to try the whole "fall back to sleep" process again.
Bad dream? How do you need advice "falling back" asleep when you plainly said that you are "wide" awake? Beats me...
I am a chronic insomniac. I am grateful if I sleep until 3 a.m. The question is how many hours of sleep are you getting. If you are getting 7 or more consider your self very lucky and you just may need to change your bed time. If you are like me and get five on a good night you may need to talk to a counselor and/or your doctor. The counselor may help you find out what you are thinking about that is causing to awake. Your doctor may determine that you just need to reset your internal clock, which takes a little time, or you may need some medication--noting wrong with that as long as you do not abuse it or share it with a friend.
Some people will tell you to get up and read for awhile.
Others will tell you to stay in bed.
Some will say play ocean waves sound effects.
Until a person has lived with insomnia, they do not know how hard it is to handle. I hope your situation is temporary.
I believe you will find this hub rather helpful if you are coping with sleeping problems

I've given up laying in bed trying to fall back asleep. These days, when I realize that I am not going to fall asleep again any time soon, I get up and do something that engages my mind briefly, like writing a notecard to my folks or reading a magazine article. After 30 minutes, I go back to bed, whether or not I am feeling tired. I'm not sure why it works, but I always manage to fall asleep again. Something that eluded me for years.
I for one spend the time praying and soon enough fall asleep. At other times I just pick up the book by my bedside table and read, before long I am too tired to read and finally fall asleep, it always works.
I don't know, but if you find out let me know. I have the same problem. Ah, but I do some of my best writing in the wee hours, so it has it's benefits.
It's natural for your body to wake up after several hours sleep. You sleep for four hours at a time so waking up at 3am is totally normal. People nowadays expect to sleep through til mornining, but that isn't what the human body does naturally so the best thing is don't worry about it, relax and just let the next cycle of sleep take you when you're ready.
Lets keep it short but sweet. There is a natural cure for everything! You don't have to live in California to be smart enough to recognize this!
I don't mind getting up early and working awhile. As long as I'm just on the computer or something else quiet so I won't wake up anyone else. But, if I want to get to sleep and can't I like a hot shower, lots of steam, a nice shampoo/ conditioner and body wash soap too. I dry off, keep a towel around my hair so my pillow won't get wet and then self pleasure, get comfy and think about nothing until I start drifting off.
